Programs That Help

During his ministry on Earth, Jesus put a premium on helping those in need. He taught his followers they will be expected to provide food for the hungry, and to give clothes to those who are without.   Everywhere He went, He healed people from sickness and restored them to health.  He gave instructions that those with two coats should be willing to share one with somebody who has none at all. He said, "Remember the poor, for they will be with you always."

In considering these teachings, one might say that Jesus was heavily involved in social service.  The various social service programs of The Salvation Army are an effort to spread the love of Jesus by helping those who are in need.

The Salvation Army strives to be timely and efficient as it examines and addresses needs within a community. It continues to seek ways to change people's lives by elevating the human spirit through the gift of Christian love. We lift people up - get them on their feet - help them grow in all dimensions of life.

Shelter Ministries

The Salvation Army program addresses the temporary housing needs of transient, chronically and newly homeless, at-risk homeless individuals, men, women, children and families in Greenville County. Our facility provides a clean, safe, comfortable environment that offers three meals per day, clothing and referrals to any other help agencies based upon each individual assessment. These critical community services greatly enhance an individual's or family's ability to once again become financially stable. They are sheltered from the streets and are provided a warm, safe and dry shelter. Residents are provided three meals per day and personal hygiene items.

Adult Rehabilitation

The Salvation Army of Greenville's CSRC Adult Rehabilitation Center is a six month residential program for men that is centered around spiritual growth. The Salvation Army's distinguishing feature in rehabilitation services continues to remain deeply engrained in its strong belief in spiritual rejuvenation. The CSRC program is designed for the mental, physical and spiritual rehabilitation of the person. The majority of men who come to this center for assistance are having problems in many areas of their lives (i.e., social, medical, spiritual, personal, and employment). The common factor for most of these persons is that of addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. These services are provided at NO COST. Program participants agree to a six-month residential rehabilitation program designed to deal with their lives and take their rightful place as part of the work force.
